schools in victorian times

Children from rich families were taught at home by a governess until they were 10 years old. Once a boy turned ten, he went away to Public schools like Eton or Harrow. There were very few schools available for girls, however, until near the end of the Victorian time. Wealthy girls were mostly educated at home.

  1. Interesting stuff. How very different life must have been as a school kid during the Victorian period; I bet it was very disciplined?
